Mike was born into a normal household. He was the middle child of Mark and Margret. Jack his older brother and Mary was his younger sister. Mark's brother lived on the same land but in a different house. It was nice and quiet farming community. The houses were spread out acres away. Everyone grew their own crops and most sold them for money too. Jack's family had 3 sons and 2 daughters. The kids always played together and sometimes got a little rough. When Mike was 7 he even broke his arm while wrestling. As with any country town they often hunted for food. With so many boys they often went on hunting trips. Mike was a natural at hunting and fishing. The love for hunting, fishing, and pride in his country led him to the Army where he spent 4 years there as a Calvary Scout. Once out of the military he still lived and worked on the farm, but also as a bodyguard. Mike offered his body-guarding service to many important figures around the world. One job got him into Chernarus where he was to protect a certain VIP until helicopter extraction, which never came.
